    Epub Patrick Holland ´ One PDF/EPUB ê ´ One MOBIOne’ is both a number and a pronoun It’s not just the lowest cardinal number alluding perhaps to ‘one against the world’ it’s also half of two So it can draw attention to duality in an individual – an alter ego a second self a Jekyll and Hyde or good and evil in the same character ‘One’ can also focus the mind on the interdependence of two characters being two sides of the one coin Among numerous other meanings ‘one’ can also mean ‘the same’ or ‘identical’ as in ‘there’s only one’ and it can mean ‘one amongst many’ suggesting perhaps that in one gang there may be only one man that matters And as a pronoun again amongst other meanings it can also refer to a person representing people in general an impersona

    Epub Patrick Holland ´ One PDF/EPUB ê ´ One MOBIThough it's been out for a few months I'd been slow in getting to this one as I thought Holland had finally hit subject matter I couldn't get interested in Australian bushrangers It took me a page On the surface of this novel is a deftly handle chase At the heart is a profound and nuanced ideological battle But it's at the line level that Holland stands out in Australian literature Not even Castro or Malouf can be so relied upon to deliver those phrases sentences those moments of poetry that open up new vistas of experience like the first time you tasted a peach or saw snow or landed in a foreign country There are passages in 'One' that will turn your heart upside down and leave you changedI'll end with a promise that I don't know whether to call happy or sober but I can guarantee you that the next winner of the Booker Prize will win it with a book not eual to this one

    Epub Patrick Holland ´ One PDF/EPUB ê ´ One MOBIAt the risk of upsetting the natives I've not been very enthralled with many Aussie novel writers To the point of being rather put off to be honestSo its a real joy to have stumbled across this one Some great writing that takes the reader along on a wild ride with The Kenniff Brothers a couple of ruthless bushrangers and the lawmen trying to capture them With racial tension simmering in the background and a strong sense of the land Holland gives such depth to the psyches of these two ruthless killers that it is hard not to feel some empathy and understanding for themA great Aussie read ☺

    Epub Patrick Holland ´ One PDF/EPUB ê ´ One MOBIThis novel is exuisite The chase the violent conflict physical and moral at its heart I'm embarassed to say I've never heard of the Kenniffs Australia's last bushrangers But I'll never forget them now As wonderful as the story and characters are for me especially the girl who even without a name impresses herself so forcefully on the story it's the Australian landscape that is the hero of this novel so very hard so very beautiful burning with gold and vermillion mysterious in its darknesses; ultimately mysterious Along with Life of Pi this is the best novel I've read this year

    Epub Patrick Holland ´ One PDF/EPUB ê ´ One MOBIBeautifully written story about the hunt for the last bushrangers in Australia It reminded me very much of The Burial by Courtney Collins a story about a female bushranger uite poignant in its portrayal of the policeman Nixon relentlessly pursuing the outlaws and Jim Kenniff the leader of the gang Who was in the right? Captures the period and the starkness of the landscape really well
